Monitor Accurately

Does the lead vocal sit right in your mix? Is there too much bass? Not enough? If your studio monitors are not telling you the truth, you've got problems. If you want to make great-sounding recordings that "translate" to the world outside your studio, accurate monitors are a must. Sweetwater's advice: you can't go wrong with the studio monitors trusted by George Massenburg, Chuck Ainlay, Nathaniel Kunkel, and many other world-renowned engineers: ATC. The ATC SCM45A Pro is an active 3-way with a 1" dual-suspension Super Tweeter, a 3" soft-dome midrange driver, and two 6.5" short-coil carbon-paper cone bass drivers. The system is amplified by a custom, discrete MOSFET Class A/B tri-amp pack. ATC monitors are handmade in the U.K. using cutting-edge components and processes, and you'll immediately hear why they're considered among the finest reference monitors in the world.

ATC SCM45A Pro Active 3-way Studio Monitor (pair) at a Glance:
  • A powerful three-way design
  • Proprietary drivers offer life-like playback
  • ATC's history of world-class audio
  • Ready for professional use
Powerful three-way design

The ATC SCM45A Pro has separate LF, MF, and HF drivers to cover a wide frequency range, with electronic crossovers that virtually eliminate phase incoherence. The SCM45A Pro's discrete MOSFET Class A/B tri-amp pack delivers a robust 150 watts for low frequencies, 60 watts for mids, and 25 watts for highs, while dual 6.5" woofers serve up powerful bass you can feel. You'll enjoy incredibly wide dynamic range, very fast transient response, and an exceptionally sharp stereo image - everything you need to make final mastering decisions with confidence.

Proprietary drivers offer life-like playback

Great-sounding monitors start with great-sounding drivers. The SCM45A Pro's drivers are manufactured to exacting standards at ATC's in-house facility. Hand-wound voice coils are made from flat oxygen-free copper wire and operate in a precision long magnetic gap. Specially designed magnet vents not only reduce air flow noise and heat, but increase power handling and reliability. These drivers are designed to give you a smooth and even frequency response without built-in EQ. In short, the SCM45A Pro was designed to perform to exacting professional standards.

ATC's history of world-class audio

ATC has focused on one thing - creating the best speakers possible - since 1974. In the SCM45A Pro, you'll find that every component was designed for maximum accuracy and sonic clarity. For example, ATC's electronic crossover has built-in phase correction, solving a problem that cause smeared audio or a lack of definition. And ATC's famous Super Linear Drivers reduce harmonic distortion by 10-15dB compared to similar speakers, which means you'll hear every nuance of your audio exactly as it was recorded and mixed. These are just a couple of reasons you'll find ATC monitors in the studios of the most discerning engineers on the planet.

Ready for professional use

The size and design of the ATC SCM45A Pro active monitors make them ideal as midfield monitors in most medium-sized control rooms. While the SCM45A Pro will sound "great" in almost any room, you'll want to make sure you're placing them in the correct configuration for maximum accuracy in your specific acoustic space. Call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer to learn more about control room design, acoustic treatment, and monitor management, to make sure that you'll be getting the most out of your ATC SCM45A Pro active monitors.
